The QSFP-H40G-CU5M= Cisco 5M Direct Attach Passive Copper Cable is a high-speed, high-performance data cable designed for use in data center and enterprise networks. This cable is a QSFP (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable) cable, which means that it has four channels for data transmission, each capable of delivering data at speeds of up to 40 Gbps.
One of the key features of the product is its direct attach design. This means that the cable connects directly to the QSFP ports of the devices it is connecting, without the need for any additional transceivers or optics. This provides a simple and cost-effective solution for connecting devices at high speeds.
The part is also a passive copper cable, which means that it does not require any power to operate. This makes it a more reliable and cost-effective solution compared to active copper or optical cables, which require power to operate.
Another important feature of the product is its length of 5 meters. This length allows for the cable to be used in environments where devices are located at a distance from each other, while still providing high-speed data transfer.
The part is also compatible with Cisco's Nexus and MDS switches, as well as other data center and enterprise devices that support QSFP ports. This means that it can be easily integrated into existing networks and used to connect devices and improve network performance.
The QSFP-H40G-CU5M= Cisco 5M Direct Attach Passive Copper Cable is a high-performance cable designed for use in Cisco data center and enterprise networks. This cable is designed to provide 40 Gbps of data transfer speed over a distance of up to 5 meters.
One of the key features of the product is its direct attach passive copper design. This means that the cable is a direct connection between the two devices, without the need for any active components or transceivers. This design results in lower power consumption and a more cost-effective solution compared to active optical cables.
The product also offers high signal integrity and low latency, which ensures that data is transmitted quickly and accurately. It also supports a wide range of data rates, from 10 Gbps to 40 Gbps, making it a versatile option for different applications.
The part is also compliant with industry standards, such as SFF-8436 and IEEE 802.3ba. This ensures compatibility with a wide range of devices and networks, making it easy to integrate into existing infrastructure.
In addition, the product has a durable and robust construction, it is made of copper and it has been tested to withstand temperatures from -40°C to 85°C, and it is also RoHS compliant.
The QSFP-H40G-CU5M= Cisco 5M Direct Attach Passive Copper Cable is compatible with a variety of Cisco devices that support QSFP+ (Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable Plus) transceivers. These devices include Cisco Nexus 9372PX, 9364TX, 9396TX, and 9372TX switches, as well as the Cisco UCS C-Series servers.
The product cable is also compatible with other devices that support QSFP+ transceivers, as long as they are compliant with the QSFP+ Multi-Source Agreement (MSA). This includes devices from other vendors that support QSFP+ transceivers and meet the MSA specifications.
The part cable is a passive copper cable that provides a data transfer rate of 40 Gbps and a maximum distance of 5 meters. It is designed for use in data center and enterprise networks, and is suitable for use in high-speed data transfer applications such as server-to-server connections and data storage.
It is important to note that the product cable is a passive cable, which means it does not have any active components such as amplifiers or repeaters. This means that it is dependent on the signal quality of the devices it is connected to, and if the signal quality is poor it can affect the performance of the cable.

About Refurbished Products
Twinaxial cable (also known as Twinax cable) is similar to the coaxial cable, with the only difference being that the former has two inner conductors. These cables were not popular until after 2013, when their applications in differential signaling showed a significant increase. Twinaxial cables are used for high-speed data transfer over short distances, usually not more than 10 meters.
Twinax Cable Length and Performance
Most of these cable types are 10-gigabit Ethernet cables and are classified as either passive or active. Active Twinax cables, as the name suggests, have active electronic components that that are encased at the connector terminal to improve signal quality. This is necessary for applications that are data sensitive. A passive twinaxial cable, on the other hand, has no components and only consists of the conductor and insulation casing. Generally, longer cables are made active because of the long distance the signal has to travel, and shorter cables are passive. But that depends on the manufacturer and brand.
Twinax cables are commonly used for connecting devices through the SFP+ interface ports. They are desired for this because of the high data throughput of up to 10GBps and low latency. A Twinax cable is many times better than other cabling standards such as CAT7 and CAT6. They also draw minimal power to operate, even for active Twinax cables.
What Materials are Used in Twinax Cable?
These cables were constructed mainly from copper wires. That was before the commercial use of fiber optic cables. Currently, you can choose between Twinax copper cable or Twinax optical cable. By comparison, optical cables are better performers and are also more expensive. So, your choice will be limited to what you have on your budget.
Twinax and Coaxial, How Do They Compare?
It is possible to get confused between these two commonly used types of cables. They are very similar in many ways, but the notable difference that sets the twinaxial cable apart is the two conductors instead of one. This construction makes these cables have better signal integrity in short-range applications. When shopping, you will have to know this difference and consider other factors as well.
